Weird error messages.
    #2473814 - 03/25/04 07:04 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Win 2000 Prof.

Every time I open IE, Windows Installer starts and apparently tries to install Easy CD Creator 5 and/or PDIconverter, but then it gives an error because those programs haven't been on my machine for over 6 months.
This also happens when I boot the computer and at random times.

Spyware was suggested by a friend, but I use both SpyBot and AdAware regularly.

Any clue?

I didn't sell out-
I bought in."

A few things you can try:

Download and install the latest version of Windows Installer.

Run regedit and check to see if HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Installer\InProgress exists. Note the filename and delete it from C:\Windows\Installer (you may need to unhide the folder). Then delete the registry key.

Open a command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW to fix broken system files.

If those don't work, try these:

Go to Windows Update and get all the latest updates for your system.

Download and (re)install Windows 2000 Service Pack 4.

Reinstall Easy CD Creator and PDIconverter, then uninstall them through Add/Remove Programs.

Hope one of these suggestions helps!
